Yesterday was our third day of volunteering at the Turtle Survival Center is South Carolina. We made mud pies and played in the water. Technically, we made hide boxes out of concrete and built recirculating water systems for turtles. Potato, po-tah-to.
My co-worker is chomping at the bit to get over to the center this morning, so you get a truncated view of yesterday’s fun times.
As promised. Cappuccino the water buffalo, aka “Cappy.”
We made mudpies! Or hide boxes. It was a lot of fun! Like making sand castles.
A friendly neighborhood anole showing off for the ladies. See him in the middle of the tree on the right?
Chelodina McCordi – Roti Island Snake Neck Turtle. This species was first described in the mid-90s. Now they are extint in the wild. The Turtle Survival Center is working with this species so that maybe one day they can be released into the wild again.
Six-line race runner. A lizard that got caught in the greenhouse and wanted to go back outside. I repatriated him to the grea outdoors.
Do you see what I see? Anole just hanging out.
Here’s a better image. I think. I hope. I can’t see anything on this computer except for pink blurs.
Turtles. Everywhere. See their mud-colored carapace?
Bananas! This is what they look like when they grow. The flower itself is gorgeous!
Today we go home. I’m going to miss this place. I wonder if Cappy would fit in a Nissan Juke…
